    Hi Stewart,

    Thanks for the offer, I would like to take you up on it if that was possible.
    I will send you a private message with my telephone details.

    The only real Fairbairn book I have is 'Get Tough' published in 1942.

    Yep, my neck now measures 19 and 1/2 inches. Mind you I have only got a very small cauliflower to my left ear, I don't know how I got away without getting more.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    Regards

    If you check the publisher's website here you'll see that they don't send the book overseas, also, only two copies per address.

    Default shinnoshindo

    Stephen,

    I would be very interested to hear what you have already learnt about Shinnoshindo. I am a student of the late Les Martin and now study under Les's top student and chief instructor of the Martin ,Fairbairn School of JU JUTSU, Mr Steve WATTS.

    I am a Second Degree Black Belt in the system which uses the Martin, Fairbairn - Ease of restaint for Law Enforcement Officers as its principal Syllabus.

    The style of Shinnoshindo, I have been led to believe, is inheirant within the CQC system of fighting.

    Only now am I being introduced to the more deadly side of this facinating and extremely effective system. Before studying with Les I was a blck belt in Shotokan Karate, studying for 14 years grading to shodan under the late Keinosuke Enoeda. The overwhelming aspect of Les's system, was the consumate ease with which he was able to despatch any attacker.

    I can be contacted via e-mail at pezuchideshi@hotmail.co.uk.

    Drop me a line and we'll have a chat.

    The second volume in the story of Fairbairn and Sykes, follows on from the Shanghai years as covered in!The Legend of W.E. Fairbairn, Gentleman and Warrior: The Shanghai Years. to give a comprehensive examination of their in work Great Britain training Special Duties personnel during World War Two.
    Their activities teaching close-combat at the Lochailort Special Training Centre is very detailed, and I was especially delighted to read about their innovations in improvised weaponry.

    Another major section deals with their firearms training, using methods totally radical in Britain at the time. Again I found the very detailed research on the various "killing houses" designed by Fairbairn and Sykes to be especially fascinating.
    I have long considered Fairbairn and Sykes to be the most significant influences on WW-2 close-quarter combat, and this book confirms that opinion. Authors Paul Child and Nick Tyler have been painstaking in their research, and produced a real labour of love.
    I eagerly anticipate the third and final volume.
